Alarm Sounded over Crooked Merchants in Yarmouk

Lawyers and activists have called on residents of Yarmouk Camp to stand on guard to “profiteers” who purchase civilian property at very low costs, taking unreasonable profit from the calamitous situation and state of psychological dismay overwhelming the families.

“As access into and out of Yarmouk is to be unblocked and following reports that the camp will not undergo rehabilitation, profiteers have left no stone unturned to purchase damaged property at extremely low costs,” a lawyer told AGPS.

The lawyer added that the crooked brokers have been telling the residents that they will not be able to go back to their homes and that the camp will remain uninhabitable due to poor infrastructure, in an attempt to force the locals out of the area once and for all.

Media sources quoted lawyer Nour AlDeen Salman as stating that Yarmouk Camp stands outside the borders of rehabilitation maps as most of its property belongs to the General Authority for Arab Palestinian Refugees and UNRWA.

The Syrian government forces regained control over Yarmouk Camp and southern Damascus towns following a 33-day military operation launched on April 19. At least 33 civilians were killed and dozens more injured in the offensive. Heavy material damage was wrought on civilian buildings and property.

Over 80% of buildings in Yarmouk Camp have been either totally or partially destroyed in the warfare. 90% of homes have been subjected to burglary and looting.
